  • What did you find out? Did you understand/agree with anything you read?


Moral absolutism
Moral Absolutism

  • Starter – On handouts, underline the statements that you think relate to moral absolutism

  • Reading – Plato – Puzzle of Ethics

  • Key Thinkers: Plato, Kant, Aquinas.

  • LO s:

  •  To explore the moral concept of ethical absolutism

  • To consider some examples of absolutist theories

  • To evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of this position.


Group task
Group Task

  • We are going to explore examples of moral absolutism. Please pick one of the following:

  • Plato – Forms (difficulty 5)

  • Donnelly – Human Rights (difficulty 2)

  • Aquinas – Religious (difficulty 3)

  • In your group, read the information, discuss it, take brief notes and answer the following questions

  • What is objective and unchanging? What is universalizable? Is this a strong theory? Can you think of anything wrong with it?


Strengths weaknesses
Strengths Weaknesses

  • Not changed by group preferences

  • Different societies can share common values

  • Gives greater authority to rules and laws

  • One person/society can morally judge another

  • No account of historical developments

  • No account of cultural differences

  • No account of individuals or situation

  • Can be harsh and unforgiving

  • Any application would be based on personal interpretation and so would be partly subjective
